Using a system in which precursor frequency can be manipulated in a murine melanoma model, we demonstrated that the clonal abundance of CD4(+) T cells specific for self-tumor antigen positively correlated with antitumor efficacy.

(2016) report that circulating IL-21-producing CD4(+) T cells are phenotypically, transcriptionally, and functionally similar to lymphoid Tfh cells and that such HIV-specific Tfh cells were increased in RV144 trial vaccine recipients.

Here, we showed that different inflammatory stimuli provoked oligomerization of the chemokine receptor CCR7, enabling human dendritic cells and T cell subpopulations to process guidance cues not only through classical G protein-dependent signaling but also by integrating an oligomer-dependent Src kinase signaling pathway.
